Hi all, I am a junior English major hoping to become an English Lit and/or ESL teacher. I am concerned about the availability of job opportunities, since I know that the job market for English teachers is tough right now, with a great deal of competition. However, I am flexible about job locations. Does anyone know of any particular regions or states in the U.S. where the demand or need for English teachers is higher than average, and where an English teacher may have a good chance of finding a stable job? What can an aspiring teacher do to increase his chances of finding work after grad school? Also, do you think that in the next four-five years, the job market for teachers in general has a good chance of improving? Thank you! I appreciate your help!
